A primer on property tax; administration and policy.

Ed. by William J. McCluskey, Gary C. Cornia and Lawrence C. Walters.



364 pages




Editor McCluskey (Built Environment Research Institute, University of Ulster) assembles international contributors in real estate, public policy studies, and land policy to explore the choices related to both the structure and administration of the property tax. Design chapters review the advantages and disadvantages of various design choices and give advice on how to choose among options. Administrative chapters examine how administrative tasks can be more effective and efficient, discussing issues such as taxation of public leasehold property, the use of GIS technology, and computer assisted mass appraisal. Of special interest are chapters on informal property in Third World cities, and non-market value and hybrid approaches to property taxation. Global cases demonstrate concepts.
